About NYIT-Abu Dhabi

Since 2005, NYIT has been offering degree programs in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates. The NYIT campus is located in the Center of Excellence for Applied Research and Training (CERT) Technology Park, adjacent to the Higher Colleges of Technology's Abu Dhabi Men's College.

All academic programs offered at NYIT-Abu Dhabi have received initial or full accreditation by the Commission for Academic Accreditation, United Arab Emirates Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (C.A.A.).

In the U.S., NYIT is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In addition, all of NYIT's business programs are accredited by AACSB International.

NYIT awards the same degree to students at the Abu Dhabi campus as its flagship campuses in New York. With constant collaboration across continents, NYIT courses in Abu Dhabi are taught by internationally recruited professors who meet the same stringent standards as those in the United States.

Because all NYIT-Abu Dhabi classes are conducted in English, students must be able to speak and write in English.
